Völkl Kendo

One word: versatility. The simple wood-core-and-metal Kendo is as powerful on edge as any speed-freak carving ski, and yet despite the traditional camber, it's as loose and multitalented in soft snow as many big-mountain skis. The chubby tip (127mm) floats in boot-deep resort powder, while the 88mm waist lets you arc hardpack turns and then pivot your way through glades. "Nimble and maneuverable but beefy and damp at the same time," said one tester. 127/88/109; volkl.com
